Wall Street Journal on iPad is too expensive

iPad WSJ is too much

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Apr 2, 2010 6:00 pm

You already know that the iPad is coming this weekend. With the launch of the iPad are also coming the launch of a bunch of iPad apps and publications like magazines and newspapers.




The newspaper publishing word is looking very bleak for many publications as costs skyrocket and subscribers dwindle. Many have predicted that the advent of devices like the Kindle and the iPad could save print media with subscribers willing to pay to read the material and delivery costs being less.


You might wonder then why the Wall Street Journal would make the cost of its iPad subscriptions so high. If the costs to produce and deliver the publication is so much less, why is it the price is very nearly the same or even more expensive than discounted print subscriptions? Rupert Murdoch is trying to get iPad subscribers to foot the bill for its ailing print business I guess. Here's hoping you a big bag of fail WSJ.
